Fire does damage at Six Flags Great America.

A multi-purpose storage building at Six Flags Great America went up in flames for unknown reasons.

 The building in question is used for cold weather storage during the winter months and in the summer is also an employee break area. Six Flags won't comment on what was damaged or destroyed in the fire but simply stated to local news that they are looking forward to opening day on May 3rd. The structure was right in the center of the park behind their "Grand Music Hall" and did some minor damage to that building. Six Flags Great America estimates the damage is about $60,000 in total loss from the small fire which was quickly under control and extinguished.
